The MLCS Multi Joint System

The MLCS Multi Joint System

318 days ago by Blackie_ | 5 comments »

As a new adventurous into box joint, joinery and after study and research I optioned for the router table version The MLCS Multi Joint System as for me swapping out a router bit is much more to my liking apposed to swapping out a tablesaw blade plus it’s easier and leaves a cleaner cut. I’ve had this system for a good bit and after trial and error during the learning phase, I now have a good grasp on how it works, am pleased with how it preforms, it’s ease in use and ready t...

MLCS Motorized router lift

MLCS Motorized router lift

459 days ago by Indiana_Parrothead | 8 comments »

I had decided to upgrade/build a new router table and wanted to add a router lift. When I started looking at options I found that there are many to choose from. Starting at the Woodpecker Side Winder lift at $245 upto the MLCS motorized lift at $389. Most of the better manual lifts were in the $325-$360 range. I decided to get the MLCS lift. I ordered it in early November and was put on a waiting list. The next shipment was scheduled to come in on Dec 31st. I found that all of those were spok...

Caution When Ordering

Caution When Ordering

469 days ago by andy_P | 9 comments »

These are sold as a pair. From the description in the catalog one would think that there is a right and left stop. Actually both stops are identical and will only work on a table saw in the right hand position. This item was quite thoroughly covered under the forum topic of “Has Anyone Purchased The Flip Stop From MLCS”. They may or may not work for your application. MLCS was very good when several of us contacted them about the product. Although we all have our beliefs as ...

MLCS Cast Iron Router Table Extension

MLCS Cast Iron Router Table Extension

858 days ago by SouthpawCA | 7 comments »

Having very limited space in my garage workshop I finally broke down and purchased MLCS’ Cast Iron Router Table Extension. This table replaces a Bench Dog table and a Rockler table. It’s mounted on your table saw replacing one of the existing cast iron extensions. The cast iron table is very heavy as my UPS guy will attest to. It came securely packaged and well oiled. After cleaning off the oil I removed the existing TS extension, in my case it was the left side of the tabl...

MLCS Laser gouded router plate #9098

MLCS Laser gouded router plate #9098

875 days ago by Pete_Jud | 6 comments »

Received this today, and mounted it up to a PC 690 D handle router. It’s kind of one of my “go to” routers in the shop. It was thicker than I expected, with a larger hole to be able to use larger bits than the Rockler clear insert that I had been using on this router, so it will not be able to use standard PC insert guides, and that”s ok with me as I have other plates to use. The laser was “dead nuts” on using a 45 V grove bit, But the feature I like the...

MLCS Jointer knife setter - easy cheezy

MLCS Jointer knife setter - easy cheezy

942 days ago by Bertha | 9 comments »

I didn’t really want to spend $80 on this but I did it anyway.List Price: $89.95 Price: $70.69 http://www.amazon.com/MLCS-9397-Jointer-Planer-Setting/dp/B001NXC6YQ NOTE: The way the jigs are setup in the picture above is incorrect! The magnets register directly onto the cutter head; they never attach to the table surface! The reviews were pretty bad, actually, but it works as advertised. It’s made of some heavy duty type plastic with really hard-tugging rare Earth magnets. T...

Drill Bits & Plug Cutters.

Drill Bits & Plug Cutters.

1336 days ago by Ken90712 | 8 comments »

I had purchased these bits and cutters a few months ago and now that I have used them for a while I decided to post a review. I have purchased several items in the past from MLCS and so far have not been disappointed. Each set of bits come in a simple little wooden storage box which is a nice touch. So far both sets of bits have performed VERY WELL, and show no signs of wearing. The only drawback and the reason I gave it a 4 stars rating is the box the tapered bits come in. They could of h...

Frustration with MLCS Dovetail Jig Defects

Frustration with MLCS Dovetail Jig Defects

1593 days ago by mikedrums | 19 comments »

Don’t you love having to fix something, out of the box, that you bought, new.I bought a dovetail jig from MLCS.I open it up and start to assemble it and there are problems, right off the bat. You can see in the following pictures that half of the six bolts on it are bent. What you can’t see is that the template brackets were also bent and thejig body was out of square. (The jig body holds the stock together at 90degrees) Of course, they offered to replace it, but I wou...

A plug cutter set well worth a plug.

A plug cutter set well worth a plug.

1953 days ago by Emeralds | 3 comments »

I’ve been looking around for good value in plug cutters and as usual decided to start at the bottom of the price ladder and work my way up. It didn’t take much time to realize that there are times when cheap simply won’t “cut” it. (pardon the pun). After three products from as many different vendors all failed to impress, I landed at the MLCS website. I skipped right over their 8 piece plug cutter set as it was very similar to the Rockler product that I had al...
